Dem Bones, Dem Bones

What is holding you up?  Your bones! This week our MWF classes learned about their bones.  We learned how many bones we have, the smallest and largest bones in our bodies,  healthy foods and exercise keep our bones healthy and we learned the names of some of our bones.  Ask your child about bones. Head to the library for children's books on  bones.  I did a quick search to see if there were any appropriate skeleton websites for preschoolers.  I didn't find anything but I also didn't look very hard.  Please let me know if you find anything age appropriate. The children were extremely fascinated with this unit.

We have two science activities set up for the children.  These activities are used during center time.  When we set up new centers, I explain the center during our group and then we assist the children as needed. The first is a puzzle.   Press the easy button!

The second center is a little more difficult.  It requires the students to look at the skeleton and match the bones to the appropriate word.  I pre-cut the skeletons and added dashes where the students are to cut. Press the easy button when you are finished!
